The Prescription Drug Safety Network is a national coalition committed to empowering Americans with the skills and knowledge to make safe decisions about prescription medications through digital education. Through the support of its private and public sector partners, the Prescription Drug Safety Network aims to make a collective impact through population-level education that reinforces healthy and safe behaviors.
Evidence-based behaviors methodologies
This self-guided digital learning experience uses interactive content and simulations to equip students with the strategies and best practices to manage and dispose of prescription medications. Based on assessments, learners are more prepared and feel more empowered to make safe and responsible decisions about prescription medication after taking the Prescription Drug Safety course.
In order to make true long-term progress on the opioid crisis, we must start with upstream prevention recommended by the White House Opioid Commission, evidence-based prevention programming in schools can enable us to better understand the reasons for prescription drug abuse and find a sustainable solution.
Scale & Impact
EVERFI’s learning platform measures student knowledge gain and changes in attitudes and behaviors as a result of going through the program, while also providing a real-time climate survey of adolescent perceptions towards prescription drugs and related behaviors.
Awareness & Communications
Network partners benefit from thought leadership and events, as well as customized community engagement and communications plan driven by their specific objectives. Network awareness is driven by subject matter experts, social strategy, and an annual convening summit. Additionally, tailored marketing assets provided by EVERFI will enable partners to leverage their impact within their communities and desired audiences.
